The Internet wasn't built with security in mind, and hackers have proven to be one step ahead of the security systems that companies are using. Once a hacker penetrates your website, they are able to gain access to your company’s most sensitive information. Even your intranet is vulnerable. Today, IT teams are given the resources to protect their company's valuable assets from modern day cyber attacks, but the systems that are available to them are quickly becoming obsolete. My cyber division, with combined experience working with McAfee, the U.S. Department of Defense and the National Security Agency, as well as working with some of the top recognized security researchers in the country, uses our proprietary software approach. Our advanced security suite, developed by our head Cyber Intelligence Specialist, keeps us one step ahead of the hackers, as well as the current security systems that most companies are using.
One well-known company with a large IT team was already taking an extensive three-prong approach to their cyber security before they were hacked. They used automated in-house tools to do regular scanning; they employed ethical hackers; and they routinely performed source code reviews. They were shocked when hackers still penetrated their website and stole very sensitive customer information. The cyber attack on that company had devastating financial consequences.
Many companies have similar in-house security systems along with monthly-outsourced web monitoring, but unfortunately in the fast growing world of hackers, these programs become outdated rapidly and leave your company with a false sense of security. A corporate data breach average costs in 2010 were $7.2 million per incident. Based on actual 2010 data loss costs involving from only 4,000 to 105,000 records, malicious/criminal attacks averaged costs of $318, while non-malicious breaches averaged $151 per record. Data breach per record losses for financial services firms were $353, up from $249 in 2009; for healthcare firms, $345 up from $301; and for communications firms were highest at $380.

BDA offers a unique approach that can find vulnerabilities that are often missed by other systems like the ones mentioned above. Companies with the most extensive security systems in place are amazed at what we are able to find.
At this time, we are offering a Free website security check-up to show you what we can find. I know you have programs in place, but you have nothing to lose by letting me perform a quick check up on your websites AT NO COST WHATSOEVER to you. This will let you know if your current programs are working, or we may find some areas that your systems may not be catching. This check-up is non-invasive and does not require any information such as passwords from your company or time from your personnel. We simply need your website address and your approval to start the check-up. With this service, you will receive an up- to date report on the current effectiveness of your web security, and possibly save your company millions from the damage caused by hackers.
So why use an ethical hacker or service who you do not know, when you can obtain services from a name in the business who you do know. My reputation precedes me and I have over 40 years experience in law enforcement and investigations. I have always upheld the highest integrity with a commitment to excellence for leading banks, major corporations and high profile clients. Bo Dietl is a name you can trust. We maintain the highest levels of confidentiality and professionalism in the industry.
Can you put a price tag on piece of mind?
"It is critical for every type of business - from sole proprietor to multinational corporation - to fully understand and appreciate the types of expenses and liabilities it may face if its computer networks are breached.In Symantec's 2010 SMB Information Protection Survey, companies reported that the average annual cost of cyber attacks for small organizations was $188,242."
"Cybercrime is moving at such a high speed that law enforcement cannot catch up with it.
— Valerie McNiven, US Treasury advisor on cybercrime."
"The FBI is currently investigating over 400 reported cases of corporate account takeovers in which cyber criminals have initiated unauthorized ACH and wire transfers from the bank accounts of U.S. businesses. These cases involve the attempted theft of over $255 million and have resulted in the actual loss of approximately $85 million."
"Who would want to break into us?" asked Mr. Angelastri, who says the breach cut his annual profit in half. "We're not running a bank." “His experience highlights a growing threat to small businesses. Hackers are expanding their sights beyond multinationals to include any business that stores data in electronic form. Small companies, which are making the leap to computerized systems and digital records, have now become hackers' main target.”
"According to Verizon’s 2011 Data Breach Investigations Report, the U.S. Secret Service and Verizon Communications Inc.'s forensic analysis unit, which investigates attacks, responded to a combined 761 data breaches, up from 141 in 2009. Of those, 482, or 63%, were at companies with 100 employees or fewer. Visa Inc. estimates about 95% of the credit-card data breaches it discovers are on its smallest business customers. "
